Welcome to the Zubal Phantom site where we store and distribute several sets of segmented images of two living human males. The original torso phantom consists of a CT-based torso and a CT-based head. This was constructed under a Department of Energy grant (FG02-88ER60724) and was conceived for use in Monte Carlo simulations of nuclear medicine imaging geometries.
We are indebted to Dr. Maria A.Stuchly, Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Victoria, Canada, who borrowed the arms and legs from the Visible Human and attached them to the original torso phantom. As a follow-up, Dr. Katarina Sjogreen, Department of Radiation Physics, Lund University Hospital, Lund, Sweden, straightened the arms out along the phantom's side.
An independent MRI-based, high-resolution head phantom was also constructed under DOE support and can be used for detailed neurological investigations. When the arms and legs were added to the original torso phantom, the original CT-based head was replaced with a scaled-down version of this improved MRI-based head.
